I finally worked up the courage to throw my headlights in the oven! Looks great on any color, but especially good on MGM
I'm sure you all have seen BHLM before, but here's mine

Still waiting on my duplicolor perfect match paint for the grill surround...

I like the brush guard more than bull bars. Post pics of your truck!

BHLM looks so good on this color. What kind of grille is that?

I have a 13 MGM DCSB 4x4. I didn't know you could remove that surround. Definitely going to do that on mine and have it painted. Chrome sucks. Was it hard to take apart?

Not too bad. There are a lot of little tabs that could easily break of, and a bunch of torx headed screws. Way over kill just for holding on the surround.
Just take your time and slowly pop them apart from one end to the other.

:edit: reading the grille painting how to's, I don't think the older ones came apart. They all seem to have to tape everything off.

Right, cause I had an 08 too, and I never heard of the surround coming off

Yeah, if you look close at the pics of the back of the grille, you can see the torx screws and tabs that hold it together. The tabs are east to spot cause they're chrome.

This was helpful.
Thanks again for the compliments. Surprisingly, the BLHM was actually pretty easy.

This may be a stupid question but can that piece of round chrome plastic in the middle of the headlight be painted black also? If so, has anyone done it? I would love to see what it looks like.
